Italian
A glasshouse restaurant, where the weather is our wallpaper. We serve breakfast and dinner 7 days a week. We do lunch on weekdays and brunch at the weekend.




Our New York – Italian menu is simple and delicious. Meats, fish, vegetables, fruits, herbs and dairy delivered daily by local suppliers. The restaurant vibe changes from a laid back sunrise through a buzzing sunset. A view like no other in Dublin, cityscape to countryside. No fuss, no formality, book a table and enjoy.




Sophie’s Bar is at the very heart of our rooftop restaurant. Pull up a stool and get comfortable at any time, day or night to take in the incredible views of the Dublin skyline while our amazing team of bartenders create a world-class cocktail for you.




Head out to our Rooftop Terrace to soak up the sun when it's hot, or wrap up in blankets under our heaters when it’s not.

    Celebrating a birthday and we had a lovely evening. Service was excellent, seating and view were great. The featherblade was nice. I’ve had better. Think it was maybe a bit dry or needed more or better gravy. Try the one in bijou rathgar for reference. Steak was nice but not cooked to the requested level. Seafood linguine was perfect. Charcuterie boards was lovely but maybe missing olive oil. Soup was cold and we were made feel bad for ordering extra onions because the kitchen were too busy even though we had ordered them when initially ordering. Oh and pepper sauce was cold. Chips were lovely though. All in all a lovely evening with some hit and miss. Probably won’t be back

    The night was great. I'm really happy, it was a birthday celebration and I had requested a particular table hoping to get it but not expecting it, cause i work in the business and i know that a request is not a guarantee, cause sometimes it simply not possible, the place was pretty busy and yet, I got what I asked for with no problems at all, including a candle on the dessert. So, well done guys, thank you very much.

    Sirloin steak was one of the best quality steak I've eaten so far. - Few waiters, hard to get the bill - I pressume the pasta that gave next to chicken was handmade. It was so yolky, better to use less yolks + could be served warmer. -Tables are so close to each other so no private conversations -Deserts should be improved portion & size & plate design.

    I dined in sophies a few times before, it's always been exceptional however this time it wasn't quite the same. Myself and my boyfriend arrived for anniversary dinner and were welcomed warmly by the clearly busy hosts, we were shown to our tables,outdoor seating nice and comfortable with overhead heaters available with a quick button press, essential last night as it was baltic out. We ordered drinks and a charcuterie to settle on before we ordered our food, the mortadella on the board was clearly store bought and packaged delicious all the same, the bread was fresh as was the rest of the platter and well presented it paired well with 2 bottles of wicklow wolf. For our mains we ordered pizza's My pizza was lashed with balsamic vinegar and buried in rocket, and my boyfriends pizza which was a pepperoni and Jalapeño had only a handful of 5 thin slices of chili on it, and a side of mash for myself which was quite powdery and dry, it stuck together like modelling clay. All in all we didn't have a bad experience, the staff were attentive and friendly, the food was timely and the outside ambience was quite chilled out my only issues are the prices of the food given what was presented.

    Sophie's @ The Dean DublinResponded on 21 November 2022Hi Luke, thanks so much for visiting and for the 4 stars! We also really appreciate your feedback and will certainly pass it on to our kitchen team. See you again soon Luke! The Sophie's Team

    We had brunch on a Sunday. Nice location (rooftop) - but not worth the price. The food is very simple & average (nothing you couldn’t cook yourself) & the service was very slow. We’d been told our table would be booked for 1:30 but we waited :30 for our order to arrive. Toasted bagel & French toasts, which probably require 10min to be ready. When asking the waiter about it, she said “it’s just very busy”. The restaurant was half empty.

    We felt that the service was poor , there was no quality check when we had our food and we had to call over the waiter for our bill after not having anything on our table for around 10 minutes. The food was excellent but I found an uncooked chip while eating the but otherwise no complaints They dealt with this situation very well and split it of our bill! Would visit again.

    I am very impressed with the restaurant. I originally had a reservation to sit on the patio, but it was quite cold and we were the only ones sitting outside, so I asked if we could sit inside. They offered us a seat at the bar without any problems because all the other seats were already reserved or occupied. The food was divine! A delight for our taste buds. The service was outstanding! We were served by several waiters and they were all smiling and very kind. The vibe is amazing, I will definitely come back again!

    Our waiter was excellent, you could tell he had been trained, a welcome change. We thought we would be seated outside but had been moved inside because it was a tad chilly and I had mentioned a birthday celebration for my niece who turns 21 this weekend. We all enjoyed our main courses and desserts. Shout out to the cheeseboard which was generous and interesting, it could have easily been shared by 3. All in all we’ll definitely be back. A very successful pre 21st celebration, thank you!

    Wayne who was managing the floor was an incredibly adept and kind host. It was my birthday celebration and he made my guests and i feel relaxed and totally at ease! The atmosphere was incredible, great views of Dublin, and I'm really not a foodie but man was the Hake awesome! Highly recommend Sophies - even before we arrived when guests were cancelling or more were joining us, the reservation team (thankyou Amy S), were so forgiving of all our changes! I'll be back soon 😀 and often! X
